Myriad Construction Defects

Infrastructure problems, design deficiencies, geotechnical engineering problems, hidden “on property” hazards, and even soil instability can cause or exacerbate conditions that lead to injury. Identifying the cause of an accident is a far subtler and more difficult business than many plaintiffs realize. It may seem obvious enough to you, for instance, that an unstable roof, faulty engineering scheme, or negligent contractor should be blamed for your concussion, laceration, burn, inhalation injury, or other problem. However, a probing review of the accident can lead to surprising conclusions. For instance, say an electrical fire started in your wall and burned through your condominium, destroying valuables and sickening your family with smoke inhalation. You might be inclined to blame the contractor or installer for negligence or poor quality work. But a forensic probe of the fire may reveal that the true culprit was a defective electrical component. In that case, the manufacturer or designer of that component should ultimately be responsible for your medical bills and other costs.

Working Together with your Florida Construction Defects Lawyer

At DWKMR&S, we strive to understand our clients’ needs, listen to their concerns and goals, and establish a strategic process to keep them informed and in control throughout their case. Our clients and legal peers alike have praised us for our probing investigative skills, deep pretrial research, and extraordinary performances in the courtroom. Although we probably could take on more clients than we currently do, we deliberately work to limit the number of clients. Why do we do this? The answer is simple: we want to maximize our focus, so that all clients get superlative care at all times.

How to be an Empowered Client

Disasters, such as construction accidents, slip and falls, and illnesses caused by exposures to toxic substances, often leave victims scared, confused, and overwhelmed. Many victims get so overwhelmed, in fact, that they fail to take any action for a while after the crisis. This can be a big mistake. Evidence that might be useful, such as pictures of the injury when it happened, photographs of the defect itself, and firsthand accounts of the aftermath, can all degrade or be misremembered. The sooner you retain the services of an experienced, compassionate Florida construction defects lawyer, the more options you may have to advocate for your rights and hold wrongdoers accountable.
